About

My artwork is part of an ongoing narrative interpreting ideas about society, memory, and identity—working as a transmitter of history and engaged with a visual language. The disruption, translation, and recasting of space figures prominently in my creative process. 

Ideas are guided by aesthetics and grounded in a definite social context that resonates with present-day realities. Historically art has served as a means of bearing witness to and as an agent of social change. It's these tensions and struggles that can define a given era, dictating how it is remembered by future generations.
